New York - Banksy, the famous graffiti artist, paid a property owner in Manhattan thousands of dollars to create his new piece of art near the High Line.
According to Fox, Banksy gave the property owner $50,000 to hang two canvas paintings for almost a week under a 24th Street overpass.
According to Business Insider, the paintings were also guarded by uniformed security guards.
According to Daily Mail, the latest installment is called 'Better Out Than In,' which was created alongside Os Gemeos, a Brazilian artist. The paintings features black-and-white soldiers next to images of women wearing burqas.
Before opening the exhibit a security guard spoke to the crowd and told them that it was a private showing and they are allowed to view the paintings, but they had to come in small groups. The guard continued and let the group know that no dogs or booze was allowed inside, and if they behaved themselves, then the viewing could begin.
